Want to ride far and fast on the road? You need a bike designed for the job.
The term ‘road bike’ generally refers to a lightweight, aerodynamic bicycle whose primary purpose is to devour miles of tarmac at high speed.
Road bikes feature fast-rolling 700c wheels and thin, high-pressure tyres; drop handlebars for improved aerodyamics; a stiff, lightweight frame and up to 30 gears.
Lighter, faster and more responsive than mountain bikes and more comfortable and efficient over long distances than flat-barred hybrid bikes, a road bike is the ideal choice for fitness and leisure riding, road racing, touring and even commuting.
